Building quality connections between people and cities
It takes a lot of people to make our region better than biking, most importantly it takes help from you! Caring neighbors and activists make up our Connect teams around Seattle, East King County and beyond make up Connect Puget Sound. Your work last year meant that Connect Teams across Puget Sound made safer streets a reality, and won important measures to secure critical investments for bikeways and trails.
This year our Connect teams are evolving and working together for two main goals: (1) make Vision Zero a reality and (2) connect the region with safe bikeways, trails and safer routes to schools.
Join us this Saturday at the Connect Big Ideas Festival:
- Learn about bike projects that will connect our region in 2016 and beyond
- Sign up for workshops, to testify and to volunteer
- Thank elected officials for taking steps towards Vision Zero
- Network with all of the awesome people in our community

When looking at the plans for a nearby street improvement, like a protected bike lane, it is easy to get caught up in the design details. But those three feet — protected by barriers like planters — transform the way you feel on the street and make you safer.
You can make a difference. Join Connect Puget Sound to stay informed and know the pivotal moments to take action.
By filling in the missing pieces with quality bike connections, we can create safer ways for people to bike from point A to point B, in your neighborhood and across the region.
Our quarterly Connect Puget Sound events aim to bring together smart and caring people from all over the region and help make our streets bike friendly for everyone. We can’t wait to hear your big idea. Please RSVP.
